Lemonade in Düsseldorf

The adventures I was talking in the previous post were waiting me in Düsseldorf. I just came back from my trip and I wanted to write down the experience I had.

First challenge: find the train station in the airport. We went to the information desk to ask for directions and the man told us to take the elevator to -1 and from there follow the signs. Guess what.. At -1 was the parking station without any obvious signs to a train station. Good.. Let's go to -2, maybe it's there. Surprise.. No signs, only parking station. Let's try to 0 (we were at 1st floor at the beginning). Finally we saw clear signs to the train station, which was at -1.
Second challenge: train tickets. I've done some research before our arrival and a ticket for 4 trips was the best combination for us. We were very sure we selected the tickets for adults, instead we ended up with tickets for children.
We used twice those tickets on the idea that 4 tickets for children = 2 for adults.
Before moving to the next subject, we travelled twice without tickets. I hope I won't receive at home a ticket for travelling without paying.
The purpose of this trip was to attend Beyonce's concert. It was amazing. I can't believe we really did this. Dear A I'm so glad we went together. I can't think of another person with whom to enjoy this experience.

The show was spectacular. The audience could have been better. I guess it's in their nature to be colder, not so expressive, to hide their real feelings.
About the city and the people, I found them cold, silent, formal. At least the weather was ok, sunny and little bit windy, perfect compared with what's home. 

I don't know if I will go back in Düsseldorf, there is not so much to see.
But who knows what future has prepared for me. 

Küsse!

Bustling Ho Chi Minh City & tranquil Mekong Delta

  My 3 weeks itinerary through Vietnam ends in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) or Saigon (as the locals know it). I had 2 days and a half to spend here. Here I met again with Leroy, who got to the city one day before me and left one day before I. From Mui Ne I took another bus to reach the big city. As I mentioned before, buses are the most convenient way to travel. If you arrange it through your hotel/hostel the bus will come and pick you up from there. Usually I prefer traveling by train because I can read and stretch my legs whenever I want, but during my stay in Vietnam I got to enjoy the conversations that you can have in the bus. On the bus to HCMC I met a woman who is teaching English to staff of a resort in Mui Ne. She wasn't a teacher but she did this for the past years, traveling around and teaching locals basic English. She was finding these opportunities through  https://www.workaway.info/ , a website who connects travellers who like to travel and do volunteer work in the place

Croatia: Dreamy Northern Dalmatia

We spent the last days of our holiday exploring the classic Dalmatian cocktail of historic towns, jewel-like waters, rugged limestone mountains, gorgeous climate and Mediterranean cuisine of the Northern Dalmatia. Plitvice Lakes In order to have a full day to spend exploring Plitvice Lakes we stayed overnight in the area. It was so quiet and peaceful there! I wish we could have stayed more days to enjoy that serenity state of the place. Being in some way a remote place it wasn't easy to find a restaurant to have dinner, but when we did it was the best. Cevapi, traditional grilled minced meat with ajvar (roasted red peppers sauce) I don't have a sweet tooth but I enjoy trying local deserts. Traditional strudel with cherries - a touch of chocolate makes this simple desert in a delicacy  Morning coffee with a view Love is in the air! From the accommodation we had 15-20 minutes drive to the Entrance 1 of the park. We have researched which trails to take and the best views are start

Stories from Hamburg

Lately I've heard a lot about Hamburg, how awesome it is and I was curious to see it with my own eyes. Being in Berlin these days, was the perfect moment to do it. I bought train tickets and here I am in a train going to Hamburg. With my book, enjoying a 2h train ride  The weather was not favorable to me, but I still have all my fingers. I must say, the rainy day enhanced the colors of this city. I was not kidding about the cold It took me a few time to get used with the temperature, but after that I forgot it was cold. I had set in mind to see the canals. I came here for that. I read some articles about this and I was impressed. It's said that it has more than Venice or Amsterdam. From what I've seen, it looks a lot with both of them, but on a different scale. If in the two cities mentioned the buildings are not so tall, here we find massive constructions. #wanderlust #urbanphotography #enthusiastictraveller A post shared by Madalina G. (@gmadalina92)
